Associate professor, Faculty of Education, York University, Canada

I have been an educational and clinical audiologist for 30 years in school boards in Ontario and Alberta, and am currently an Associate Professor and Academic Coordinator in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education Program. My areas of research are in educational audiology, which is the interface between clinical audiology and education. Today, when babies are screened for hearing loss at birth, and amplification technology improves every year, more students with hearing loss are able to attend their neighbourhood schools, but this still requires academic, social, language and technological support from teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing and educational audiologists. My research focuses on technology that provides access for deaf and hard of hearing individuals. I write a monthly column on school-based issues for Canadian Audiologist, the journal of the Canadian Academy of Audiology.
